Party on a yacht down the Delaware River in style with a three hour open bar, a dinner buffet, and a live DJ all included with your ticket.

Get ready to kick off Fourth of July Weekend in style. We're teaming up with the Spirit of Philadelphia Cruises to bring you the 10th annual Drink Philly booze cruise.

On Wednesday, July 3, prepare to hoist anchor for a three-hour tour of crazy proportions. We'll sail down the Delaware River in style with a three-hour open bar featuring craft brews, wine, a select signature vodka cocktail, a light dinner buffet, and live DJ, all included with your ticket.

We'll also have some professional photographers on board, so you'll want to slip into your best Red, White, & Blue attire for the evening. If you're not sure what to wear, we've included some "Pin-spiration" below, and you can check out the photos from last year's cruise here. Boarding for this year's cruise is at 6:30 PM and departure is at 7 PM.

Where can I park? - The boat does not own or operate any parking lots in the area, but local parking is available at Lombard Circle Parking Lot on Columbus Boulevard and Lombard Circle.

What's included in my ticket? - Your ticket includes entry, a light dinner buffet, a 3-hour open bar which includes beer, wine, and our select cocktail with Vodka. All other drinks are cash bar.

I can't go or am running late, can I get a refund or can you hold the boat? - All tickets are final and we can't provide refunds. You can however resell your ticket privately or just give it to someone else. The name the ticket was bought under does not have to match whoever attends. Boarding and open bar begins at 6:30 PM and the boat departs at 7 PM sharp. We cannot control that so make sure to get there before departure!

Do I need to reserve seats? - The ship is HUGE with three decks of seating and has plenty of tables available for everyone. There is plenty of room for you to sit together and you don't have to worry about reserving seats. If you have a large group of 10 or more, you can contact us about reserving seats.

Do you offer group discounts? - Sorry no, these tickets are already discounted from the boat's usual prices so they are discounted as much as we can offer.

All other questions can be directed to info@drinkphilly.com. Cheers!
